Don't I know you?

Oh, oh! I had a GREAT moment the other day, one that made me smile all afternoon. I was at the office and about 10:00am felt an urgent need for coffee. As you do. Normally I'd just run up the 3 flights of stairs to the staff cafeteria, but sadly, my purse contained maybe 30 cents..... So, outside and off to the ATM it was.

I got some notes out of the machine and as I exited the bank lobby, two guys came in. I immediately recognised one of them as an old boss from my banking days back in..... um.....1989? Somewhere thereabouts anyway. And I was highly amused as I watched his eyes slide over me, then away, and then he literally did a double-take. I stood there, waiting as his mind frantically raced to put a name to the face. I eventually put him out of his misery and smiled at his "wow, you're looking...... well!" (translation: Holy crap! you're thinner, healthier and blonder than I remember!)

Ah, I love those moments.

Hee hee, know that feeling. Though with me people I knew actually don't recognise me at all and I have to go up to them and re-introduce myself.... it is the best feeling in the world when they do double takes! Have a wonderful weekend.
